In situ atom trapping of Bi on W-coated slotted quartz tube flame atomic absorption spectrometry and interference studies

Ataman, Osman Yavuz
Analytical performances of metal coated slotted quartz tube flame atomic absorption spectrometry (SQT-FAAS) and slotted quartz tube in situ atom trapping flame atomic absorption spectrometry (SQT-AT-FAAS) systems were evaluated for determination of Bi. Non-volatile elements such as Mo, Zr, W and Ta were tried as coating materials. It was observed that W-coated SQT gave the best sensitivity for the determination of Bi for SQT-FAAS and SQT-AT-FMS. The parameters for W-coated SQT-FAAS and W-coated SQT-AT-FAAS were optimized. Sensitivity of FAAS for Bi was improved as 4.0 fold by W-coated SQT-FAAS while 613 fold enhancement in sensitivity was achieved by W-coated SQT-AT-FAAS using 5.0 min trapping with respect to conventional FAAS. MIBK was selected as organic solvent for the re-atomization of Bi from the trapping surface. Limit of detection values for W-coated SQT-FAAS and W-coated SQT-AT-FAAS was obtained as 0.14 mu g mL(-1) and 0.51 ng mL(-1), respectively. Linear calibration plot was obtained in the range of 2.5-25.0 ng mL(-1) for W-coated SQT-AT-FAAS. Accuracy of the W-coated SQT-AT-FAAS system was checked by analyzing a standard reference material, NIST 1643e.

Arslan, Yasin; KENDÜZLER, ERDAL; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2011-09-30)
Sensitivity enhancement of indium determination by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) was achieved: using a slotted quartz tube (SQT-FAAS) and slotted quartz tube atom trap (SQT-AT-FAAS). SQT was used as an atom trap (AT) where the analyte is accumulated in its inner wall prior to re-atomization. The signal is formed after re-atomization of analyte on the trap surface by introduction of 10 pi of isobutyl methyl ketone (IBMK). Sensitivity was improved 400 times using SQT-AT-FAAS system with respect ...

Significant improvement has been achieved for antimony determination using a slotted quartz tube (SQT) as an atom trap (AT) for in situ preconcentration and flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS). The suggested technique consists of trapping analyte species during ordinary nebulization followed by releasing the collected analyte via introducing organic solvent. Procedures and analytical figures of merit have been presented for the techniques called FAAS. SQT-FAAS and finally SQT-AT-FMS with the relevan...
Sensitive determination of bismuth by flame atomic absorption spectrometry using atom trapping in a slotted quartz tube and revolatilization with organic solvent pulse
Kilinc, Ersin; BAKIRDERE, Sezgin; AYDIN, FIRAT; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2012-07-01)
Sensitivity of flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) for Bi determination was improved by slotted quartz tube (SQT) that was used also for atom trapping (AT). The trapped analyte was released by aspirating a small volume of organic solvent after a reasonable analyte collection time. Sensitivity was improved by 2.9 times by SQT-FAAS and 256 times by SQT-AT-FAAS with respect to FAAS. Optimum trapping period was found to be 6.0 min (36.0 mL of solution). Limit of detection (LOD) for SQT-AT-FAAS was found...

Slotted Quartz Tube (SQT) is a simple device that provides a sensitivity enhancement of 2-5 times in Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (FAAS) depending on the element. A Gas Screen-Slotted Quartz Tube (GS-SQT) was designed to further increase sensitivity. For this purpose, two slotted gas chambers were fixed on the left and right sides of a burner head and Ar gas was supplied into these chambers perpendicular to the light path to produce two thin layers of gas screen. It was observed that these Ar screen...
Electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometric determination of gold by vapor formation and in situ trapping in graphite tubes
Ertaş, Gülay; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2004-10-01)
Gold was determined in ore samples following generation, separation, collection on a graphite cuvette inner wall, and atomization of its volatile species formed by combining an acidified sample solution with an aqueous sodium tetrahydroborate solution at room temperature. A detection limit of 2.6 mug L-1 (3sigma) was obtained with a 5.0 mL sample volume. Precision of replicate measurements was typically 10% RSD. The overall efficiency of the volatile species generation, transport, and trapping process was 0...
